Map Description
Historical Map of the United States: Expansion 1836-1853

Illustrating

- Republic of Texas, 1836-1845; annexed by U.S. 1845

- Disputed area: Claimed by Texas 1836-1845; claimed by U.S. 1845-1848

- Mexican Cession, 1848

- Gadsden Purchase, 1853

When Texas was officially recognized as a state in 1845, it included the light-gray area, which
was also claimed by Mexico. The
Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo resolved this dispute, with
Texas claiming the disputed land.

In 1850, Texas transferred part of this land to the federal government, which became the eastern
portion of the territory of New Mexico.
